    You may say Furtado but I say Fartado, Furtado, Fartado, lets call the whole thing off.

    Yeah I waited three years to use that joke.

    Whatever, finally these stealing wankers are getting sued:

    Interesting turn of events, were I not otherwise engaged there probably is an analogy I could make with piracy and the arguments there.

    oh and for those interested in this sort of thing

    Yay, it may be bad to say, but I am really glad that something is finally being done about this... I just hope that the company suing Timbaland doesn't run out of steam before he gets what he deserves.

    Maybe if this takes off all of the other artists that he has ripped off will surface as well! (See Below)

    For the song in question:


    For other songs:




    And there are plenty more on Youtube, simply search for "Timbaland Thief" or "Timbaland Steals"...

    Damn, thats a pretty crazy coincidence. I do agree though, Timaland does have good taste.

    This stuff happens all the time in modern pop music, especially rap(Let the flames fly for that one), but they usually never get caught. So it's not the fact that he did this that's so amazing, it's his egotistical response. What he needs to do is man up, admit he was caught and pay the guy. This is going to be a short court fight as the plagarism is very obvious.

    Makes me want to sample one of his beats and make a song with it out of pure spite.

    It's not quite the same. It's probably more of a coincidence than anything. After all, there aren't an unlimited amount of melodies.

    Oh well, no worse then all the stupid rednecks who think that Kid Rock's All Summer Long is an original tune when it's just Lynyrd Skynyrd's Sweet Home Alabama and the song Werewolf In London mixed together, it's stupid as hell that no one sued him for copyright infringement, but then again he might have at least credited the artists, otherwise he would be paying royalties out the ass for the rest of his life. Anyway, this comes as no surprise and I laugh at how fucking arrogant Timbaland is, that fatass SOB couldn't see originality if it slapped him in the face and gave him a BJ. I can't stand either of those hacks, they aren't musicians by any stretch, no one in pop music is a musician, they can't play and sure as shit can't sing. Would love to slug Timbaland in the face with a metal bat just to shut his sorry punk ass up.

    What a cocky little git, his retort basically says he knows exactly what he's done and doesn't give a toss because he thinks he's above it all. Argh people like that make me so mad, glad they're throwing the book at him. Hope it leaves a dent in his thick skull too! :shakefist: Given how close the match is they're either going to have to settle or lose and pay damages, from that youtube link there's no denying they're an exact match.

    How many pop stars in America actually produce an original song these days?

I don't know him from a can of paint." wtf! and these fucking artist bithces complain aobut us and piracy, like "WE" go to their house and steal it. fuck them record labels and bastards, timbaland is a faggot. they're all just hypocrites and faggots.

    Well, I have deep respect for Nelly's music, she is cool. About Timbaland, I cannot comment.
    They have so much money it.


    Awesome!, they are really similar!
